By MARTIN BAKER, Associated Press The trail at the Snake River Lodge in northern Nevada is so haunted that visitors have nicknamed it “Snake River.”
The lodge, one of a handful in the U.S., has a history of being haunted.
It opened in 1894, and a woman who lived there told The Associated Press in the early 1970s that she had been raped and murdered by an older man who had raped her and had buried her body in the lake.
The man’s death was reported in the local paper.
The lodge has been haunted by spirits since the 1920s.
The lodge is open to the public seven days a week and is closed during the winter months.
Visitors can stay at the lodge for free, but the cost includes a $10 entry fee and a two-night camping pass.
The lodge was built to house a couple of families from the area.
When it closed, the owners had to sell the property to raise money to renovate the lodge and buy more rooms.
They were able to raise $12,000 to open the resort in the 1980s, but it’s been shuttered since 2011.
The owners did not return phone calls seeking comment.
In the early 2000s, a man who was visiting the area said he saw a large figure walking across the lake and then vanished.
He was not wearing a shirt, and he could not be located.
There is no word on how long the trail remains haunted.
